There is a story that defines happiness:
Two women in an old age home share stories about their sons. The first woman says, with disgust, that her son is so busy and only visits her once a week. When he visits, he only brings her one lousy piece of candy. Also, she says, his wife is so spoiled – she never cooks, all they do is eat out, and she shops all day. What a miserable son she has! The second woman describes her son, with utter gratitude: he is so busy, yet never goes a week without visiting her. Every time he visits, he brings something sweet for her, like a piece of candy…how thoughtful! And you should see how he treats his wife like a Queen – he takes her shopping and out to dinner all the time. A true mench!
Two women. Same story. Two wildly different perspectives. One woman is happy and grateful, while the other is miserable.
